This film follows the hardships Lahu girls face as they come down from the hills to enroll at a Chinese primary school. The Chinese students laugh as the Lahu girls who finish last in races and on tests. One girl falls ill, and is sent home; another finds out her mother has run away. The girls' teacher feels frustrated and hopeless; the school principal wishes he had never admitted them. Can the Lahu girls make it in modern-day China? And what price will they have to pay? Do Chinese schools empower or assimilate China's minority children? "Children of Blessing" takes a controversial stance on this ever sensitive question.
